Many politicians took a dig at BJP for promising a free coronavirus vaccine. Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut also took a swipe at BJP and said that it shows the discriminatory nature of the ruling party. He phrased a saying from the freedom struggle days and said, “Earlier it used to be – ‘tum mujhe khoon do, main tumhe azadi dunga’ (You give me blood, I will give you freedom) and now it’s ‘tum mujhe vote do,hum tumhe vaccine denge’ (Give us vote, we will give you vaccine).”
“Now, a new policy is being schemed that the BJP-ruled state will get the coronavirus vaccine free of cost. These sorts of proclamations are bringing disgrace to PM Narendra Modi. Are preparations underway to divide India?. First, they divided the country in the name of caste and religion, now the same is going on in the name of the vaccine,” Raut added.

Rashtriya Janta Dal took Twitter and said, “The vaccine belongs to the country and not the BJP. The political use of such a crucial vaccine shows that BJP has no substitute but to sell the fear of disease and death. The citizens have their self-esteem and they will not sell their fate for this.”
Furthermore, other political parties such as Congress, Samajwadi Party have also denounced BJP for promising free coronavirus vaccines in its election manifesto, released by Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman.
